Stevie Nicks wrote this song. It is most likely about the doomed relationship she had with the band's drummer, Mick Fleetwood, during the time.

California indie pop band Best Coast performed the song live on the July 17, 2012 episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Their appearance generated strong enough interest to warrant the cover being released as a single.
Thomas from El Paso,txMy favorite song is Sara by Fleetwood Mac. My best friend of 30 years is named Sarah. She is moving to Arizona to begin her third battle with cancer. This song will keep me sane, from breaking. The last time I saw her, I washed her feet with Holy water. We made our peace, said our goodbyes. I told her that if this was the last time I ever see her, that I am truly very sorry if I had ever hurt her. She said " No, you have never hurt me".
Erica from Texarkana One of my favorites by the goddess known as Stevie Nicks, yes I am aware it is a Fleetwood Mac song, it's her haunting voice that gets me everytime.
Pj from Twain Harte, CaI was listening to this song when my dad was dying of cancer. After he was gone, I really related to this, even though I know it's about a doomed relationship. I was close to my dad, we were friends too, really. This song just speaks to me, and how much I miss him. Loss of my dad, my friend, and his importance to me in life does make me a little melancholy too, and when I hear this song, I can cry.
Eb from Fl Keys, FlI trcently read that "On page 28 of the October 2011 edition of Men's Health, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams is asked for his top 5 relaxation songs. Number 2 is Storms." I can understand why, it's got such a sweet, calm vibe, a little melancholy, but not overly so.
